I am sorry to inform you that Eddie O’Bryan will soon be leaving our staff. I am very grateful to Eddie for all he has done for us in the past six months. He has worked tirelessly to keep the Church clean and our property neat and clean. At the same time, I am happy to tell you that Patrick Clary will join the staff as parish custodian. Patrick is a new member of our community. He brings much experience and knowledge to the job. Currently he is the chair of our Art and Environment and was thoroughly involved in the Easter environment we have had the past few weeks. Thanks, Eddie! Welcome, Patrick!
We have eleven young parishioners who will be confirmed by Bishop Medley on Pentecost Sunday, May 19th. They have been working all year to prepare themselves for this wonderful event. Today (Sunday) they will travel to Gaspar River Youth Camp for a Confirmation Retreat. I ask you to keep them in your prayers in these final weeks of prayer and preparation. Thanks to Donna Murphy and to Meghan Payne and Noelle Curry who have worked with these candidates in their preparation.
I am looking forward to the “field trip” to St. Louis on June 23rd for the Cardinals’ baseball game. I was happy to be able to make arrangements so that I will be able to join those on the bus. I understand that there are still seats available. Sign up…. It will be a great day!
I will be away this week attending the spring meeting of the Board of Governors of the Canon Law Society of America. We will meet in a beautiful (?) airport hotel in Baltimore. Have a blessed week.
Love, Fr. John
